Sample text

In the 1820s, the Rosetta stone provided Champollion with the key to Egyptian hieroglyphs; Assyrian cuneiform was fairly well understood by 1857, and Ugaritic was read in 1930, just a year and a half after the first tablet was found. Whether written records survive depends on what they were written on. Most literate societies of the ancient Near East left inscriptions on stone, or sometimes on metal. These texts, however, are limited in their subject matter, usually proclaiming the greatness of a king, recording his victories, entreating the favor of a god, or displaying the laws of the land.

The flood story of Gilgamesh and the laws of Hammurabi also attest these links. Abraham’s journey from Ur to Canaan has left no visible traces along the route. For later writers, this memorable trek was an example of a bold adventure in obedience to a divine command.

The account of Paul’s shipwreck shows just how dangerous such travel could be (Acts 27). The following list gives the distances in miles between places mentioned in biblical accounts of journeys, marches, and other movements of people. A selection of distances outside Palestine has also been added to the list to set journeys mentioned in the New Testament in a wider context. Since the routes taken from one point to another are not generally known, distances are those of a straight line. This approximation serves for comparative purposes and to provide an idea of the length of a journey.
